Larry Correia is an award-winning competitive shooter, a movie-prop-gun master and, yes, an accountant by day—but an urban noir adventure master by night. He is the creator of the Wall Street Journal and New York Times bestselling Monster Hunter series as well as urban fantasy hardboiled adventure saga, the Grimnoir Chronicles and epic fantasy series Saga of the Forgotten Warrior with first entry Son of the Black Sword. Correia is lives in Utah with his wife and family. He's also appeared as a guest on the TV show Gun Stories, on the Outdoor Channel.
Pulp, fantasy, and myth-making; excellent action scenes (Larry Corriea, so OF COURSE) tangled up with intriguing secret histories and towering characters, playing out across a hybrid of traditional (hence, Norse) fantasy, and Indian / South Asian influences, for a result that's got a lot more Conan than it has Bilbo Baggins.
The setting, story, pacing and action are all top-notch, but Correia's writing doesn't quite transition as smoothly to the fantasy genre, just in my humble opinion; it's just not quite as note-perfect as when he's writing urban fantasy or magical noire.
Very good and enjoyable read. Larry Correia does an excellent job in building cool, strong characters on both sides of a conflict. And the action scenes are definitely gripping and adrenaline-fuelled. Looking forward to his next book.
